Mboua Boubakary scored one of Panthère’s goals this Tuesday afternoon as relegation threatened Panthere of Nde further exposing the recent woes of AS Fortuna with a 2-1 victory.
The lunchtime kickoff at Annex 1 of the Japoma Annex Stadium was decided by the 20th-minute strike though there could have been more goals if not for the wasteful attitude of the forwards on show.
Mboua however made the most of his chance midway into the first half following a poor outing by Fortuna’s goalkeeper Pascal Zeze Engo who surprisingly started ahead of their usual keeper Jean Daniel Stephane Nyeck.
Guy Edoa Serge and Junior Kevin Mfede of Fortuna displayed glimpses of their brilliance in the attack.
Multiple good goalkeeping interventions from Pharel Junior Akibong of Panthère kept the boys of Koni Emmanuel ahead till the break.
The defensive input from the Panthere defense led by Marc Essono was commendable.
Upon return for the second segment Pantera
Kalamanji Duhamel forced a brilliant save off Pascal Zeze following a fine counter-attacking move. About almost immediately picked the rebound on the edge of the box but was brought down by a former Lion Blesse defender at the expense of a penalty.
Franck Mbondji Tchoupe converted the resulting penalty to make it 2-0 with 26 minutes of the contest left.
Severin Rodrique Onana pulled one back for Fortuna in the 86th minute but Panthere held on till the end.
A poor clearance from Panthère’s keeper Junior Akibong in added time gave Fortuna hopes of equalizing but the shot from Onana was cleared by a combination of Panthere defenders in a goalmouth scramble.
Jean Marie Ebode Atangana was sent off following a second bookable offense.
The game ended 2-1, a victory that ends Panthère’s run of six games without a win.
The latest defeat extends Fortuna’s winless run to four games for the first time this season.
Panthère’s latest win takes their points tally to 11 this season but they remain third from the bottom though with a realistic chance of beating the drop.
